LEGISLATOR LAURA SCHAEFER AND THE 

NASSAU COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT OFFER 

SAFETY TIPS TO PREVENT STOLEN CARS 

AND LARCENIES FROM VEHICLES


LEGISLATOR DENISE FORD AND THE



Legislator Laura Schaefer and the Nassau County Police Department would like to alert the public that we have seen an increase in stolen autos and larcenies from automobile’s in Nassau County. The thefts are occurring at all times of the day and night in which the car has been left unlocked and the key fob left in a vehicle equipped with a push button start. We would like to urge citizens to be vigilant using the following safety tips to help safeguard your vehicle:


Always lock your vehicle, even when it’s parked in your driveway or garage.

Always take your keys or fob with you.

Never leave or hide a smart key, valet key, or spare key anywhere in or on your vehicle, no matter where you park it.

Never leave your car running, while unattended or unlocked.

If possible park your vehicle in a locked garage.

Park in well-lit areas.

Keep the exterior of homes and driveways well illuminated.

Close all your vehicle windows completely when parked.

Consider installing a GPS system, a visible anti-theft device or an audible alarm.

Never leave valuable personal property in your vehicle.

Also, secure your garage door opener to prevent access to your home.



Most important, we want to remind people when they are leaving or returning to their vehicles, they should be observant of cars and people who appear suspicious.


Dial 9-1-1 and be ready to provide the police with as much information as possible regarding the description of the suspicious person or vehicle. License plate numbers are extremely valuable information for the police.
